Subject: Chinese

Classical or Literary Chinese (also known as Wenli or Wen-li) is still very relevant to the Chinese speaking world today. Literary Chinese is the form of written Chinese used from the end of the Han Dynasty (206 BC) all the way until today. Literary Chinese is also known as Wen-li, wen-li or wenli. In China PRC Most Chinese people with at least a middle school education are able to read basic Classical or Literary Chinese, because the ability to read (but not write) Classical Chinese is still part of the Chinese middle school and high school curricula ;. and is part of the college entrance examination. Classical Chinese is taught primarily by presenting a classical Chinese work and including a vernacular gloss that explains the meaning of phrases. Tests on classical Chinese usually ask the student to express the meaning of a paragraph in vernacular Chinese, using multiple choice. They often take the form of comprehension questions. In addition Literary Chinese is still used by many Chinese who live outside of china. Taken together, that one group of Chinese outside of china would form the fifth largest population group in the world, if classed by themselves.
